And the good news just keep on coming! After Saturday’s announcement that we won the AASL 2017 Best App for Teaching and Learning, we have yet another great news to share. We are proud to announce that we launched new educational application Lifeliqe HoloLens for Microsoft’s mixed reality device HoloLens. The app is based on award-winning content from Lifeliqe’s mobile app and is free to download at the Windows Store.
“We’re crossing yet another boundary with Lifeliqe HoloLens. Mixed reality has a huge potential and future and we’re excited to be part of it right from the beginning,” said Ondrej Homola, Lifeliqe CEO. Launching Lifeliqe HoloLens is reinforcing the position of Lifeliqe as end-to-end solution for teaching K-12 sciences with the product delivered on two major immersive hardware platforms (Microsoft HoloLens and HTC Vive) as well as software platforms (Windows and iOS).
Launching Lifeliqe HoloLens app follows the first ever MR pilot in grade 6-12 classrooms Lifeliqe conducted in April to June. In a survey that followed the pilot, 82.7% of the students reported they felt more curious about the topic and 81% of the students reported they could better understand the subject matter when using Lifeliqe on HoloLens. All of the teachers that took part reported they witnessed a better understanding and engagement from their students.
“Education is transforming, mixed reality is an area that we believe will help support learning outcomes. Microsoft is committed to empowering students to create the world of tomorrow, and the Lifeliqe HoloLens app is one of the great examples of a partner adding huge value to this arena,” shared Anthony Salcito, Vice President, Worldwide Public Sector Education, Microsoft Corporation. “We are proud to have Lifeliqe as part of our ecosystem and look forward to working with them in the years ahead.”
The app contains 10 lesson plans with 20 interactive 3D models that are aligned with Next Generation Science Standards and Common Core so it brings not only the appealing content but also fits the national learning standards. The topics range from human anatomy to chemistry, physics and geology. This way the students can examine the human heart or witness a tsunami wave in the middle of the classroom. Lifeliqe HoloLens is also a native app, meaning there’s no need for internet connection after it’s downloaded to the device.
